Ambassador to France, Ex John Kelly Aide Go on Record Denying Atlantic “Losers” Story, 15 Government Officials Have Denied

It’s a fake news story.

The United States Ambassador to France and a former top aide to ex-White House Chief of Staff John Kelly both denied that they had heard President Donald Trump refer to deceased American war dead as “losers” during a 2018 France trip, putting a fake news story reported by the Atlantic that only cited supposed anonymous sources to bed.

Former Kelly aide Zach Fuentes and US Ambassador both denied that they heard Trump say any such thing in remarks on the story on Monday.

You can put me on record denying that I spoke with The Atlantic,” Fuentes told Breitbart News on Monday. “I don’t know who the sources are. I did not hear POTUS call anyone losers when I told him about the weather. Honestly, do you think General Kelly would have stood by and let ANYONE call fallen Marines losers?

Ambassador Jamie McCourt, who was on hand for President Trump’s commemoration of World War I’s hundredth anniversary in France, also denied that she heard any such claim from the President.

Needless to say, I never spoke to the Atlantic, and I can’t imagine who would,” McCourt told Breitbart News.In my presence, POTUS has NEVER denigrated any member of the U.S. military or anyone in service to our country. And he certainly did not that day, either. Let me add, he was devastated to not be able to go to the cemetery at Belleau Wood. In fact, the next day, he attended and spoke at the ceremony in Suresnes in the pouring rain.

Corporate news outlets have reported the outlandish and sensational Trump “losers” story, which claims that the President flagrantly insulted World War I war dead buried in France, as if it is verified fact. An unclear number of totally anonymous supposed government officials have reportedly vouched to it to the Atlantic and Fox News, but not one individual has publicly attested to its veracity.

The two denials of government officials on Monday make for a total of 15 public denials- all from verified Trump administration employees, easily outweighing a shadowy allegation from someone who is too afraid to speak publicly about the sensational claim.

The Atlantic’s Jeffrey Goldberg reported a fake news story. He should be ashamed about his lack of journalistic integrity, although his long track record of lies, including propagandizing for the Iraq War, make it seem likely he lacks the capacity to.

Jim Acosta Calls Conservative Media a “Disinformation-Industrial Complex” and “Potential Existential Threat”

Project much, Jim?

CNN’s Jim Acosta appeared on Brian Stelter’s Sunday morning show “Reliable Sources” to call conservative media a “potential existential threat” that could “cause more suffering.”

Referring to the on-screen graph that shows a significant drop in engagement with Trump-related articles, Stelter asked Acosta if he thought this “quiet period” was temporary. Acosta replied as follows:

I think it is temporary. I do think what this country faces right now […] I describe it as the disinformation-industrial complex, and that is Trump and his people, conservative outlets like Fox News, and then conservative websites and organizations aligned with the president, and conservative platforms. These three pillars of this disinformation-industrial complex essentially helped put Trump in power, kept him in power, sustained his grip on the Republican Party, and it remains a threat to our democracy. It is the reason why there were hundreds of Trump supporters storming the Capitol on January 6. And until that poison, that toxin, is drained from the national political discourse in this country, Brian, I do think that these forces represent a potential existential threat to this country and have the potential to come back and cause more suffering in the days to come.”

Acosta does not seem to realize, however, that the popularity and influence of right-wing outlets like Big League Politics are direct consequences of “journalists” like him and networks like CNN. They’re the original traffickers in disinformation and in fanning the flames of fearmongering. Alternative conservative media would not have taken off if the mainstream media weren’t so unbearably leftist.
